The Role of Fire in the Redwood Region
Abstract:The resistance of redwood to fire has developed a deeply rooted apathy toward fire protection in the region of its growth. The heavy stands obscure the actual damage done by fire but its extent is great and far reaching in its effects. Already the remaining virgin areas and the cut-over lands have been irreparably injured. The article here presented is probably the first that makes fires in the redwoods a major issue.
